    hi
    we bought a plastic rigid kiddie pool which was ideal,however is now cracked,lasted about a week.i think its more to do with my son emptying it and then plonking it on a stone than caused by the ducks! but wondered if anyone had any other ideas that wont cost a fortune but might be more strong..I have seen rubber trug tubs but cant find big enough, sheep foot baths cost a fortune..any ideas?

    I bought a 40 gallon troft thing at one of the feed stores here for about $29.00 about a year ago. It is heavy duty and made out of black plastic and very thick so it won't fall apart. I would think you could get them at a TSC also. I put a cinder block in front of it and my ducks use that to get up and into the pool.
    Works good for my ducks,
